A panel of over 100 Judges made up of many of the sector’s best and brightest will decide who goes home with what as the gambling industry turns its gaze to the city for the annual Awards show, both in-person at the event and online viewing the live stream.

Fourteen prizes are up for grabs but like the Oscars, everyone has their eyes on the big five: Land-based Operator of the Year, Digital Operator of the Year, Land-based Product of the Year, Digital Product of the Year and American Executive of the Year.

In the running are major players like BetConstruct, which alongside sponsoring the event has been shortlisted for the Digital Product and Digital Supplier Awards, while the best land-based category is a who’s-who of brick-and-mortar operators from around the world, including the likes of MGM Resorts, the Genting Group and Caesars Entertainment.

The category’s digital counterpart is no less stacked, featuring big brands in the online space such as WynnBET, FanDuel and 888, while IGT, the tech multinational, has been Shortlisted in no fewer than seven categories.

The American Executive Award, which is the only one to go to an individual, is a much anticipated and highly competitive category, with many founders, CEOs and other gaming heads looking to join the ranks of former winners.

Additional Awards categories include Land-based Industry Supplier, Digital Industry Supplier, Customer Loyalty Program, Property — North America, Property — Latin America, Product Innovation, Slot of the Year, Payment Solution and Responsible Business.

Also starting today in Vegas is the annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E), which will bring a multitude of businesses and industry insiders together to show off what they have been working on.

Advertised as the “premier event for commercial and tribal gaming professionals,” this year’s G2E is set to be an especially interesting one, as it will give everyone in the gambling sector an opportunity to properly view how it has adjusted to the new post-pandemic reality.
